Brown Trout at Threipmuir Edinburgh

Threipmuir has been fishing really well following a slow start and low water levels. June has seen some fantastic catches with fine Brown Trout to approx. 4lb. Lee Currie has kindly sent in some great photographs summing up a pretty incredible month. Threipmuir is now full of water and has received several stockings earlier this year, although it also contains a good head of over-wintered and wild fish.

Fly Tying at the Open Day

The Fly Fishing open day at Harlaw Reservoir, Edinburgh was a great success, we had around 80 visitors looking and trying their hands at fly casting, fly tying and learning all about some of the tackle. Our barbeque was as ever very popular. Our visitors munched their way through freshly caught and expertly cooked trout. There were various trout and sauces to try.
